Ziggy Stardust. Raphaël Ponce Raphaël Ponce
   
Ziggy stardust
Gouache + crayons de couleur sur papier.

Commencé en 1989 ou début 1990 et terminé plus tard, le 24 novembre 1994, «Ziggy Stardust» est le dernier de la série des portraits consacrés aux groupes / chanteurs / musiciens de l'exposition « Punkarama », qui a eu lieu à la galerie Atomium, à Toulouse, en 1990. Ce dernier portrait ne figurait donc pas dans l'exposition « Punkarama », mais il sera inclus dans la version numérique de cette même exposition, actuellement en cours de réalisation.

Il me reste encore un ultime portrait de la série «Punkarama» à publier sur ArtQuid, celui qui illustrait l'affiche de l'exposition; mais il ne s'agit pas d'un chanteur, ni d'un musicien, ni d'un groupe.



Ziggy Stardust est un personnage fictif conçu et interprété par David Bowie au début des années 1970. Ziggy est une star androgyne du futur. Le personnage est au centre de l'album «The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars» (1972), qui relate de manière imprécise son histoire : celle du messager humain d'une intelligence extraterrestre cherchant à transmettre à l'humanité, qui n'a plus que cinq années à vivre, un message d'amour et de paix.


Five Years, le morceau de la vidéo ci-dessous, est le premier titre de l'album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. La chanson parle de la Terre qui est condamnée et des conséquences de la connaissance de cette fin à venir, qui doit arriver dans cinq ans. Selon des rumeurs, Bowie aurait choisi ce délai de cinq ans à la suite d'un rêve, où son père décédé lui disait qu'il ne devrait plus jamais voler et qu'il mourrait dans cinq ans.

Pushing through the market square, So many mothers sighing
News had just come over, We had five years left to cry in

News guy wept and told us, Earth was really dying
Cried so much his face was wet, Then I knew he was not lying

I heard telephones, opera house, favorite melodies
I saw boys, toys, electric irons and T. V. 'S
My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people

A girl my age went off her head, Hit some tiny children
If the black hadn't a-pulled her off, I think she would have killed them

A soldier with a broken arm, Fixed his stare to the wheels of a Cadillac
A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest, And a queer threw up at the sight of that

I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlor, Drinking milk shakes cold and long
Smiling and waving and looking so fine, Don't think you knew you were in this song

And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there
Your face, your race, the way that you talk
I kiss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk

We've got five years, stuck on my eyes
Five years, what a surprise
We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, that's all we've got

We've got five years, what a surprise
Five years, stuck on my eyes
We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, that's all we've got

We've got five years, stuck on my eyes
Five years, what a surprise
We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, that's all we've got

We've got five years, what a surprise
Five years, stuck on my eyes
We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, that's all we've got

Five years
